I noticed a slight bug for the Ukrainian alphabet. A hyphen "-" can be
an integral part of a town name, as opposite to indication of the
division of a word at the end of a line.

Well that's true in the UK as well, but for some reason the hyphens are being preserved there even when a line break is inserted, for example:


So the question is why are the hyphens disappearing in the Ukranian names but not in the English ones?


Hi Tom,

The hyphens are not disappearing from the Ukrainian geographical names. The names are just always spit in two lines at a hyphen for some towns. Exactly as for Wotton-under-Edge <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wotton-under-Edge> in the UK. Google map shows the name /Wotton-under-Edge/ always in one line on the map: https://www.google.com/maps/@51.6338253,-2.3526667,14.95z?hl=en , but the OSM map always shows this name split in two lines.

In France too some towns' names are always rendered in two lines now. For example: Saint-Jean-d'Angély <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saint-Jean-d%27Ang%C3%A9ly> : http://osm.org/go/equZGaGg-- . Maybe it is an indented feature now, however at Google and Bing maps such town names are displayed in on line, as it should be.

Best regards,
